MAGNA, Utah – A 14-year-old suspect surrendered to police Tuesday afternoon after a search that prompted four Magna schools to go on lockdown.

Brockbank Jr. High was placed on lockdown after police received a report that an armed juvenile was spotted near the school.

Granite School District officials also placed Cyprus High School, Pleasant Green Elementary and Magna Elementary on lockdown as police searched the area for the teen. The lockdowns were lifted shortly before 4 p.m.

According to the Unified Police Department, the teen surrendered to police near 8400 W 3100 S.

Granite School District officials said the weapon the teen had been spotted with was confirmed to be either a toy or a facsimile.

Lt. Justin Hoyal, UPD, said the teen has not been involved in any previous crimes Tuesday that they know about.
